  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 125g unsalted butter

  • 1 eggs

  • 100g chocolate chopped into chips

  • 175g granulated sugar

  • 150g plain flour

  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 190C/Gas Mark 5.
  2. Line your baking tray with baking parchment, or if non-stick, grease with a little butter before baking each batch.
  3. Slowly melt the butter in a saucepan, before pouring into a mixing bowl with the sugar. Wait until the mixture's cooled down, before cracking in the egg and mixing everything together with a wooden spoon. Add the vanilla extract.
  4. Sift in the plain flour, baking powder and salt and mix everything together. Scoop out a heaped teaspoons worth of the dough and mould into a ball with your hands. Place on the baking tray, making sure to leave plenty of room between each cookie. They're much bigger once cooked.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes. The edges should be golden brown, and the centre soft when you take them out. Allow to cool for a few minutes before eating, or store in a sealed container for up to 5 days.

Handy Hint

The longer you cook them, the crunchier they'll be. Adjust cooking times to your needs and your oven!

    This recipe is nice, although the cookies stick to the baking tray a lot (despite being greased!). It would also be handy if the recipe told you how long to melt the butter for and the temperature for fan ovens. Overall it was a great hit in our house, except for having to scrape the stuff cookies bits of the baking trays.

    If you like your cookies with a crispy edge and a chewy center that gets stuck in your teeth, then this is the recipe for you. Very quick and easy to make and perfect with a glass of milk or a cup of tea. I chose to use white chocolate, but you could just as easily use dark, or milk. You could even use cherries!
